Festive fundraising success at Reydon care home for Elf Day
Staff and residents at Oaklands House care home in Reydon near Southwold are proudly announcing a superb donation for the Alzheimer’s Society, after a successful day of festive fundraising.
On Friday 4th December, the team celebrated Elf Day, decorating the home and donning elf-themed fancy dress and props, whilst enjoying festive games and activities. A raffle was held for residents, staff and relatives, thanks to an incredible amount of generous prize donations, which helped them raise a fantastic total of £400 for the charity.
The Elf Day is just one example of the varied entertainment and activities provision in place at the home. Staff have also been going above and beyond in recent months to come up with fun and innovative ideas for residents during the Covid pandemic, including silver service dining experiences and more.
Home Manager Ian Gooch explains, “We’re’ extremely proud to have raised so much money for such an important cause which is very close to our hearts. Elf Day was so much fun for our residents and our staff and it was great to get festive and enjoy some Christmas silliness after a challenge few months.
“I’d like to thank the whole team here for putting in so much effort to make the day so special for our residents, and to all the home’s families, friends and loved ones for supporting our fundraising drive. Your support is truly appreciated.”
